About me and my therapy practice

I offer a confidential therapeutic relationship, in a safe and purposeful space, in evening (west end of Edinburgh city centre) or day sessions (east side of Edinburgh).

The therapy I can offer is not prescriptive; it is based on your own unique needs. I might work with your current personal sense of yourself, with a focus on what you feel is hindering your sense of wellbeing. In longer term therapeutic relationships, I work in a more psychodynamic way. This involves noticing some less conscious experiences from present and past, and how you tend to feel in relationship with others. My position is always to support you in your unique personal journey towards an increased sense of wellbeing and self-empowerment.

Examples of challenges clients have shared with me have been around coping with stress, anxiety or painful feelings, needing support around significant life transitions (including loss of someone, job, changing home), finding it hard to understand who they are, or their purpose, difficulties in personal or professional relationships, going through academic-related worries, hurting from complex childhood experiences. Your individual life journey is always unique and I work with your unique experience.

Searching for a therapist who feels right for you is important. When this is an unfamiliar experience it can feel uneasy to contact and meet that therapist. As a fully-qualified and experienced counsellor, I am sensitive to this. I can empathically and without judgement support through this from the moment you get in touch with me.
